One of the building’s most striking features is the main façade, with its distinctive curtain of aluminium fins. The design, together with the materials used, is simple and restrained – helping to provide a stunning yet calm sculptural backdrop to The Monument.
The artful ‘curtain’ of fins, with its rhythmic repeating pattern of twists, has been specially designed to maximise the amount of natural light, while at the same time providing shade. The ‘curtain’ hangs down from the ninth to the second floor.
The exterior of the rest of the building, with a mix of alternating Jura stone and glazed panels, has been carefully designed to fit in with the immediate surroundings.
